Linda Ikeji blog (lindaikejisblog.com) and Seun Osewa’s forum (nairaland.com) has always been Nigeria’s most visited websites before the emergent of E-Commerce in Nigeria.
Linda Ikeji blog (lindaikejisblog.com) formally lindaikeji.blogspot.com is known for hottest news on News, Events, Entertainment, Lifestyle, Fashion, Beauty, Inspiration, Gossip Etc.
Nairaland.com on the other hand is a forum where users post anything under the earth like Politics, Crime, Career, Business, Investment, Romance, Jobs/Vacancies, NYSC, Programming, Education, Autos, Science/Technology, Webmasters, Computers, Phones etc.
The two websites has been chasing each other bumper to bumper, but I noticed a sudden plunge of lindaikejiblog.com from the 9th position according to Alexa.com to 17th position as at today 3rd September 2016, one cannot but wonder why Naira land has maintained it position but Linda Ikeji blog dropped to 17th position.
The only thing I suspect is Alexa measuring system that was changed read more on Alexa Increases its Global Traffic panel and since Linda ikeji post alone with a few others and it cannot really stand the competition with naira land that has thousands of people posting different things every day.
Though not only lindaikejiblog.com was affected, most sites around the globe were effected and today Alexa is about how many unique content you can post, no longer just numbers of visit to your website or blog. You can read more on how to improve your Alexa ranking.
